Key Features of BUNN Infusion Series

BUNN Infusion Series Overview

The cafeteria at my office has to support the 2,000 employees who work there every day, and they have 5 of these running at almost all times. Given that this model brews up to 11.9 gallons (45 L) of coffee per hour, you can see why my company chose the BUNN Infusion Series.

With BUNN’s BrewWISE intelligence with pre-infusion and pulse brew (aside: I love how companies brand their technology) you get maximum extraction of your coffee grounds.

And as someone who consumes coffee from one of these behemoths every day, I can attest that this is just about the highest quality mass-volume coffee maker you’ll find.

Tech-wise, this model is compatible with BUNNlink. No, that’s not a new dating app — it’s BUNN’s machine-to-machine monitoring program. With BUNNlink your machine’s usage data will be transmitted to BUNN for monitoring and analysis, leading to better customer service by BUNN and their service techs.

Not all BUNN commercial brewers require plumbing, but this one does.

  • 20-90 psi (138-521 kPa)
  • Supplied with 3/8″ male flare fitting

It’s dual-voltage adaptable and can operate at 120V/15 amp or 208-240V/20 amp. The 120V model requires 2 wires plus ground service rated 120V, single-phase, 60 Hz. An internal terminal block is configured for connection to a 3 wire plus ground.

At 48 lbs it’s massive, but you’re buying this unit to sit stationary somewhere. You want the weight. It’s evidence of the supremely high-quality stainless steel construction this machine proudly boasts.

You’ll need to purchase the airpots separately.

Pros

  • Stainless steel construction
  • Massive 3 gallon water tank
  • BUNNlink compatible for remote usage monitoring

Cons

  • Doesn’t come with airpot
  • Doesn’t function well above 5,000-foot elevation
